On Wednesday Chris webber formally announced his retirement after 14 seasons in the NBA. For those of you interested ESPN has a snipet of it up on their website.
Warriors.com has the full interview up on it's site
Webber didn't say too much revealing about what he plans to do next. Even though yesterday I wrote about his possibiliies of becoming an NBA Head or assistant coach the position of GM wouldn't be far off. He would defintely be better then the following Kevin McHale, Isiah Thomas, Billy King, Danny Ainge, John Paxon, Danny Ferry, and Chris Mullin.In 3-5 years when Webber's ready there is no doubt I would significantly take my chance rather then the above people listed.
Having said all that Webber looks set to follow the Chucksters shoes and become a TV pundit with TNT starting today. The irony of it all is the Warriors face the Blazers tonight on TNT so Webber gets some early practice. He may be subbing in for Kenny Smith but chances are should he get a TV job I could see him providing a ton of inside info since his career has been loaded with experiences.
